Thanks for calling attention to this, GoP!

LiA's posts are Exhibit A in a longish list of exhibits of how LMA is not just a group chat, but a rich source of insight into the amazing collection of performances the boys have left us. I have learned so much from so many people here, that I'm frankly still digesting the amazing shows and tracks I've been pointed to.

Both LiA and Cliff have given us much-appreciated catalogs of their own listening work. My only regret is that these guides are scattered among so many other posts here at LMA. Anyone up for collecting some sort of index with links to those remarkable posts?

Well, I've done some collecting for myself -
http://deadessays.blogspot.com

I reserve it for my 'bigger' posts though, so my history of posts here is more well-rounded. Still figuring out how to make that more of a useful reference site with more topics covered, since left to myself I tend to get bogged down in huge essays on 1970 or Dark Star or whatnot.

Brilliant! Now I can delete my bookmark to your acoustic sets report and replace it with a bookmark to your blog. Thanks!

Case in point--this post is three years old this weekend, and I found it only because I had remembered it as a useful resource. Even then, I had to fool around with various search terms before hitting on "hucker ballroom", which turned it up as 1 of 26. How many of the newer members of this madhouse would have come across it?

Don't tell me this town ain't got no Heart



Just gotta poke around


For those of you who have never played around with the search feature it can uncover some interesting old stuff, I used it once to track down the first post in the Grateful Dead forum once.

Another good tool is the link by author - just click on the underlined user name and magically all of that users posts come up (good, bad & ugly).

Remember this thread?

That's a sterling example of an excellent older post. (And, unfortunately, the kind of post Cliff hasn't done in a while.)

One sad thing is that newer forumites who've only been here a year or two haven't seen some of the amazing posts that HeLives did. But that's the nature of time, we're always missing something.

Ah yes, thanks for reminding us of his work. He was truly your brother in prolixity. The index should definitely include his offerings as well.
